SearchCampaignChangeHistoryReportRequest Data Object


Defines a change history report request. Use this report to discover when changes to an account were made, as well as which user made the changes.

You can request a record of changes made by user and date. For example, you can request a record of changes to campaign name, location target association, and keyword bid. You can request both the old value and new value in the report.

This object inherits the following elements from the ReportRequest object.

ElementDescriptionData TypeRequired/Optional
FormatThe format of the report data. For example, you can request the data in comma-separated values (Csv) format or tab-separated values (Tsv) format.

The default value is Csv.

Note: All downloaded files are ZIP compressed.
LanguageThe language to use to generate the report headers and columns.

The default is English.
ReportNameThe name of the report. The name is included in the report header. If you do not specify a report name, the system generates a name in the form, ReportType-ReportDateTime.

The maximum length of the report name is 200.
ReturnOnlyCompleteDataDetermines whether you want the service to generate the report only if all the data has been processed and is available.

If True, the request fails if the system has not finished processing all the data based on the aggregation, scope, and time period values that you specify. However, if False, the request succeeds but the report will contain only the data that the system has finished processing at the time of the request (there is no indication as to whether the data is complete). The default is False.

Note: When a user clicks an ad, it can take from three to four hours for the system to process the click and make it available for reporting. For more information, see Determining When the Books Close.

Because you cannot retrieve complete data for today, you must set this element to False if the end date of the custom date range specified in the Time element of the derived report object is set to today, or if you specify one of the following predefined time values:
- Today
- ThisWeek
- ThisMonth
- ThisYear
